[Courses] Jewish Mysticism (Kalman Bland)

You know you’re in for a ride with an introduction like this. Anyway, a pretty cool introductory course if you’re interested in Kabbalah and Hekhalot literature, and their historical background (and you should if you ever watched Neon Genesis Evangelion). I would’ve loved if the course was a little bit longer and more explicit on the whole mythology behind the curious practice, though (it’s more of a history of than a guide to comprehending Kabbalah).

Also, it doesn’t seem to be sold anywhere anymore, so I had no choice but to torrent it, lol.
